This frame from a video released by Sony shows its flexible OLED screen being bent into a semicircle while the video continues to play on the screen.

OLED pixels use an organic material that emits its own light, so no backlight is needed. That means the screens consume less power and can be made thinner. OLEDs also handle fast-moving images better and offer good color reproduction.
The lack of a backlight makes the screens much thinner than competing LCD or PDP panels, as can be seen in this side view of a Sony 27-inch OLED panel.
